NEWS: Loopnet uses Virtual Earth/Windows Live Local

Windows Live local is now an integral part of the most widely used mapping and search application in the Commercial Real estate industry. LoopNet is a technology provider to every big name in the industry, powering applications for Re/Max, Grubb and Ellis, Coldwell banker… Their application suite now uses mapping from Windows Live Local including the amazing Bird’s Eye views, allowing agents to visually inspect a neighborhood or property from their desk. 

Interesting that Loopnet chose to go with Microsoft technology for their business-critical application. I’m sure things like Developer support, enterprise track record, and of course FEATURES like Birds eye that no one else has weighed into their decision a little.
